More About Ann Cook
I work with children and adolescents experiencing depression, anxiety and behavioral issues. I also work with adults experiencing depression, anxiety, life transitions or adults with mental health concerns that are impacting their ability to manage day to day life.
My therapeutic approach integrates a variety of interventions dependent on where a client is at and what their needs are. I believe that everyone encompasses the inner strength and resiliency that is needed for healing, and I am here as a guide to help you tap into those resources. Helping clients on the path of self-exploration and personal growth takes time and understanding. Building a therapeutic alliance shapes the course for therapy and reveals the client's ultimate goals. I use various clinical approaches during therapy, depending on the needs and goals of each client on their journey toward wellness. I tend to incorporate aspects of Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and taking relaxing nature walks.
